Academics' Statement of Protest Regarding Faculty Firings at Mount St. Mary's University
6
7
We the undersigned, as members of the community of scholars, protest the firings of Edward Egan and Thane Naberhaus from their
8
faculty positions at Mount St. Mary's University.
9
10
The manner and circumstance of their dismissal raise serious questions about the respect given to moral conscience and intellectual
11
freedom at Mount St. Mary's. Of particular concern is that Prof. Egan was fired partly for actions taken in his role as faculty advisor to
12
the university's student newspaper, which first broke the stories leading to the present controversy. It is also alarming that these faculty
13
were fired without any academic due process as required under AAUP guidelines and the customary standards of tenure.
14
15
As a Catholic institution, Mount St. Mary's is bound by the teachings that "charity always proceeds by way of respect for one’s neighbor
16
and his conscience" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, par. 1789), and that in the context of the Catholic university "the freedom of
17
conscience of each person is to be fully respected" (Ex Corde Ecclesiae, II.2.iv). As a university, it is bound by the standards that
18
govern any university in respect of its faculty.
19
20
We call for these faculty to be reinstated immediately, and the administration held accountable for this violation of their rights.

Signed,
